I am the same as others to a certain extent. I don't want to share it but some things are too beautiful not to. We have been all around the world and without question we have NEVER found anywhere as idyllic as this place. After 6 times it feels like home and the owner refers to it as our home...

This was our 5th visit to this stunning property. Catherine has made a 'heaven', total relaxation away from the 'real word'. I thought long and hard about writing a review, as not sure l want to 'share' with others, it may be too difficult for me to book next time!!! If you do visit, you MUST have a meal cooked...

Management response:

Thank you so much! Already holding Alto Mare for your next visit in 2018!

What more can I say without repeating all the good points that the other reviewers have just said which are all true. Catherine, the owner, is the most helpful person you could want to rent a villa from and always on hand if you need anything - which we didn't as its all there as advertised and more. The views...

Management response:

Thank you very much Anne, for your nice words. I will definitely write some extra driving instruction for the way back to airport! However, the regular road should reopen end of 2016 and every thing will easy again. Looking forward to welcome you again at Alto Mare! Catherine

About the neighbourhood
At 8 km from the villa, Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia, largest of the seven Ionian Islands. Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the great earthquake of 1953, that ruined most of the historic buildings on Kefalonia. Traditionnal Kefalonian fishing boats moor alongside the more extravagant temporary visitors during the summer. If you are early enough you can buy freshly caught fish. Otherwise, a stroll around the harbour will take you on a tour of some of the most luxurious yachts. Many of them are owned by the rich and famous who are attracted to Kefalonia by the tranquillity of Fiscardo.Fiscardo at night takes on an entirely different perspective.The lights, the old buildings, cafes, bars and res... more
